Quarantine has led me to fine tune my musical taste. I've discovered that the music that boosts my serotonin levels is the classic rock bands of the 70s and 80s. Perhaps I was born in the wrong era, but here are my 10 favorite bands that I've been listening to these past two months.


The Eagles have some of the best road trip songs. There's something about their music that makes you want to ride a horse across New Mexico and watch the sunset. The rhythm and guitar strumming is very relaxing and laid back.

Dire Straits

A lesser known British rock band that I had never heard of until a friend mentioned them this year. If you're a guitar player, you'll love these guys. They know how to use chords and riffs to create the perfectly melodies. That and their lyrics are so poetic. There are plenty of serenade worthy songs.


They've got power and vocals beyond what I've ever experienced before. They also have a very odd sound that's a little different than the average rock band. It's almost fantastical.


Another household name. Everyone knows their song "Don't Stop Believing", but they also have some very powerful rock ballads under their belt as well.

Fleetwood Mac

One word: trippy. Their music makes you want to grab all of your friends and dance around the woods in the middle of the night. It's beautiful.


A classic British band that almost everyone is familiar with, but I tend to enjoy their less popular songs the most.

The Beatles

Everyone knows the Beatles and I mean everyone. The Beatles really emit those fell-good summer vibes with their music.

Guns N' Roses

Guitar. Lots of guitar. If you play guitar, chances are you've encountered a Guns N' Roses song. They're very well known for their riffs and raspy vocals.


This is another band I wasn't quite familiar with until this year. They can be defined as hair-rock. You know, the old-school rock bands with the long hair. Yeah, that's Europe. Their songs make you want to get up and get something done.

Van Halen

I discovered Van Halen through my father's old vinyl collection from when he was a kid. He had their 1984 album and I love every single song on it.

The importance of Memorial Day

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds.

However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.
